Looking to access Safe Ministry Training?
Everything you need to know about Safe Ministry Training
Safe Ministry is a journey that starts when you first get involved in ministry to vulnerable people – children, teenagers and adults – and continues for the duration of that ministry.
And so, it is essential that all people involved in Anglican ministry to the vulnerable, including children and teenagers, are thoroughly equipped and trained for that journey with approved Safe Ministry training.
The Anglican Diocese of Sydney is an endorsed training partner under the Safe Church Training Agreement which is a nationally agreed standard for Safe Ministry training. The diocesan Professional Standards Unit is responsible for the administration of this training in the Sydney Diocese.
All people working with children or youth in ministry, including ministers and assistant ministers, are required to complete Safe Ministry Essentials, and then every three years undertake Safe Ministry Refresher training.
What some people say about online training…
I think there has been a lot of time and effort put into developing this and it is a fantastic resource, and a good way to get the most number of people trained.
Many thanks to the team who organised and set up the course for the online refresher!!
I am a mother of 4 with a hubby who has physical disabilities, so after missing our last church refresher course, getting to another refresher course has been challenging for me.
I truly appreciate that I had this option at home and it was very user friendly for me.
Thank you so very, very much!
I have sat through so many child protection seminars both as a volunteer and professionally, most of which were boring and presented as a way to tick a box. Safe Ministry Training was thorough, engaging, educational and inspiring and professional. You really took it to the next level. Thank you and well done.
As a senior person I was not sure how I would go. However, I found it quite easy to follow and seeing in written form actions that I should have taken some nine years ago in my own church situation, has made me aware for future.
I think all members of a Parish Congregation/s should undertake this training to be made aware of such things as Boundaries/Abuse of Power/Control people/ and our young children's ministry.
I really found the online format helpful as it allowed me time to think about the material over a few weeks and review it several times. Webinar case study was excellent in its practical application.
Thanks for preparing such an excellent course on this important topic.
A very professional, well thought out and well presented online course.
